The Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition adds up to £1,275 worth of extra equipment not normally available at this level in the range but is priced at just £540 more than a standard Abarth 595. Offered in a choice of three colours (Record Grey, Scorpione Black or Officina Red) the additional features of the Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition include colour-coded brake callipers with matching wheel centre caps; a carbon-effect Abarth decal set; 17-inch ‘Formula’ alloy wheels; dark-tinted rear quarter windows and specific ‘Trofeo Edition’ badges.

In addition to saving money on exclusive extra equipment, Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition customers can also benefit from a £595 Abarth deposit contribution as part of a special PCP finance offer, reducing the customer deposit contribution to just £1,865 with monthly payments of £199 over three years*.

Powered by a 140hp, 1.4-litre turbo-charged petrol engine,the Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition is capable of accelerating from 0-62mph in 7.9 seconds and has a top speed of 127 mph, while still being capable of returning 43.5mpg on the official combined fuel economy cycle.

Sebastiano Fedrigo, Country Manager of Abarth brand, commented: “The Abarth 595 Trofeo Edition is a very special model for the Abarth brand because Carlo Abarth was a racer first and foremost and to this day the Trofeo Abarth Selenia Europe race series remains at the very heart of the brand. Trofeo Edition brings a little bit of that magic to just 250 enthusiasts in the UK which makes it an exclusive and even more desirable package.”
